It’s been a year since Megan Thee Stallion first declared a hot girl summer and rallied hotties all across the world to bump one of her anthems through their speakers.
Her “Hot Girl Summer” collaboration with Nicki Minaj dropped in August 2019 and she carried her momentum straight into 2020.
Artist, college student, model, and businesswoman are among the descriptions for Megan Thee Stallion and she keeps surprising fans by making milestone moves. The latest is a testament to her love of anime.
Megan Thee Stallion is a huge anime fan
If you follow the rapper’s social media accounts, you know that she is a major anime fan. Megan Thee Stallion frequently pulls inspiration from the genre for her hair, makeup, and fashion choices.
She’ll often have her team put together looks that resemble some of her favorite characters, and one of her nicknames is Todoroki Tina, a tribute to My Hero Academia and Megan’s alter ego, Tina Snow.
In April, Megan did an interview with Crunchyroll and shared that she plans to drop new music with anime-related lyrics. But that chat wasn’t the end of her interaction with famous anime streaming site. The pair teamed up for a unique project.
Megan Thee Stallion and Crunchyroll announced streetwear line
On July 9, Crunchyroll and the “Savage” rapper let the world know they joined forces to create a limited edition streetwear line.
The exclusive collection is available by pre-order only in the Crunchyroll store until July 20. All items are unisex and will ship sometime in September.
Per Crunchyroll, “This collection captures the animated glory of the official Savage music video with six exclusively designed pieces: two t-shirts, two hoodies, one long-sleeve shirt, and one tote bag.”
Designs include an animated version of the rap star holding a sword and a mouth illustration similar to what’s seen on her Suga album cover.
Megan Thee Stallion’s fans are saying this is a win for her and anime. She’s promoting the venture on Instagram where one person wrote, “Next level!!! You are breaking boundaries left & right.” Another added, “Coolest thing u or any rapper ever did.”
Get a sneak peek in her Instagram post below.
Her Instagram announcement for the launch was met with fire emojis and even a shout from actor Michael B. Jordan.
Megan Thee Stallion’s multiple fashion collaborations
Last fall, Megan became the face of new holiday promotion for Coach, and was featured alongside Yara Shahidi, Kate Moss, and others. It was her first fashion campaign, and immediately after, she donned Puma gear in a fresh spread. Those marked the beginning of her major brand partnerships.
She’s also been a star model for Savage x Fenty and set the internet on fire when she served lingerie looks for Rihanna’s Fenty brand. At the time, Rihanna stated, “Meg is the energy we were looking for. She is a risktaker with an attitude, character, and personality.”
Megan Thee Stallion is hyped about her Crunchyroll alliance which you’ll only be able to catch for a short time. Check it out on her Instagram account or on the platform’s website.
